Epson Module Turns Projectors into Interactive Devices

Epson has unveiled a new interactive module for use with projectors and a 5 megapixel document camera.

The interactive module, dubbed the IU-01, brings together a stylus, a projector, a computer, a USB drive, and TeamBoard Draw software to enable digital notes to be drawn on a projected image.

The TeamBoard Draw software, a program with integrated picture in a picture tutorials and support for both Mac OS X and Windows systems, allows educators to capture digital notes and review, edit, or share them.

Usable surface areas supported by the module include areas up to 96 inches with a 1,280 x 800 resolution and 102 inches for a 1,024 x 768 resolution.

Scheduled for release in October, the unit will be priced at $599 and will launch with a two-year parts and labor warranty, as well as two years of phone support.

Epson has also introduced the DC-11 document camera, a 5 megapixel model that offers a 10x digital zoom, 1 GB memory, and a framerate of 30 FPS at full resolution.

The camera supports output resolutions up to 1,280 x 960 (SXGA) and automatically adjusts resolution and aspect ratio when combined with an Epson projector.

Software included with the projector enables time-lapse video capture and, with the aid of a built in microphone, A/V capture.

Other features include a built microscope adapter, split-screen capability, and security options that include a Kensington lock port and security bar.

The DC-11 will come with a two-year parts and labor warranty and two years of phone support. It will be available in September for $499.
